I grew up wearing out my VHS tape of the Mary Martin Peter Pan, so obviously when NBC announced that the successor to last year’s Sound of Music Live! would be Peter Pan, I was both intrigued and terrified. While the Celebrity Casting is not quite as rage-inducing as last year'(In fact, I am more than okay with the casting, slight Network Nepotism aside), I can’t resist the opportunity to live-blog NBC’s latest venture into presenting a live “theatrical” production. There are MANY moving parts in Peter Pan. There are kids. There are live animals (as Nana is being played by an actual dog, as opposed to the traditional method of having a person in a dog suit). There are people flying on wires. There’s Christopher Walken tap-dancing. And it’s all LIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIVE!
Will NBC strike gold a second time? Join me here at 8/7C to find out!
